Beau's mom, Piggy, passed away today at the ripe old age of 15. I was very fortunate to know Piggy well and to draw her once several years ago. Piggy was named Breeze but quickly earned her nickname 'Piggy' for being the grunty one of the litter and the food hog. She finished her championship despite having no blaze and went on to retire to be a very successful therapy dog. She was a neat dog and Beau is most definitely her son. They had the same silly stupid grin and both lived to make people smile and laugh. RIP Pig. You'll be missed by us all. I can't believe she's gone.
